Since taking the plunge back in 2003, leaving the corporate sector to pursue what was then just a hobby - things began to move along very quickly.
I learned the ropes on 35mm and medium-format film cameras, creating feature fashion editorials for several UK magazines. That grew into portraiture and events - now encompassing a range of commissions across the entertainment, education and corporate sectors. I've even splashed around in the pool of photographic art. The digital revolution happened for me in 2005.
My clients now include international brands such as BBC Learning/Radio 1 & 1Xtra, Proms and Writer's Room, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Parliament, Sainsbury's, BFI, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein - as well as a range of lesser-known but equally aspirational brands, businesses and individuals.
My work has taken me across the world, introduced me to some excellent people and helped deliver content that can make a real difference.
I worried when becoming a film-maker, that my photography work would suffer. Thankfully I'm still able - most of the time - to juggle both worlds. Actually, I've found that both those worlds have converged into one - with increased demand for digital content of all kinds.
In a world of snapchat filters and effects (which are fine) I'm excited to keep proving that there's nothing quite like the real thing. Bring on 2019.
